03/02/11 Horse Racing Tips and Results


1.30 – #2 Fifth In Line Fifth In Line
In good form of late and excuses for her last start when coming fifth due to a rough start. Drop back to 6f should suit, slight rise in weights but of no concern and drawn better than last start. Fergus Sweeney on board, been mount the filly in her last 6 starts performing well including a seller win at Lingfield and should do well with her in this field. Presumed to be threatened by Ajaffa, now Fifth In Line 5lb more than when beating him 2nd in her Lingfield win but will take on the challenge as the latter is inconsistent in his performance.

Won @ 5/2

3.30 – #5 Ubenkor Ubenkor
Course and distance winner and in good form of late. 4lb down than coming 2nd to San Antonio, now 2lb up, and drawn aside him same as last run so should be able to overpower the latter this time. Also opposed by Bentley, now drawn fairly wide than he was in the trial between the two last month and so Ubenkor stands a chance of beating this contender as well. Not an easy race at all as 4 leading runners claim for the win, however our pick should hold a complimenting price.

Came 4th

4.30 – #1 Toby Tyler Toby Tyler
Course and distance winner, improving from run to run and was suited by a drop in trip to 6f winning here about a week ago. Faces same conditions now as last start in terms of weights, trip and opposing contenders, however this time drawn better and should benefit from it though already in a superior position. Micky Fenton on board the 5 year old, same jockey as last three starts where a notable improvement cannot be overlooked.

Came 7th

1.40 – #1 Apache Ridge Apache Ridge
Running rather well of late, enough to be considered as a possible in this run. Proven over distance winning  at Wolverhampton last month, drawn wide however seems to thrive under such position delivering his best when drawn wide. Weights are of no doubt high enough, carrying the highest in this trial as others carry 5lb less than him but will take on allocated as already done before. Capable of beating Frequency, the favorite for this race, as both stood a trial against I Confess, current selection beaten 2nd whereas Frequency beaten 4th. Julie Burke mount the 5 year old – An Advantage.

2nd @ 11/4

3.40 – #9 Soundbyte Soundbyte
Notable improvement in his last 4 starts steadily climbing in finish positions. Now drawn better than last starts and also carries last weights than used to, a compensation for the rise in grade though proven able at such in past starts. Last two starts conducted fairly well coming in respectable positions, Fergus Sweeney on board ridden a third of all his starts, more than any other jockey ever to mount the horse. Previous performance shows team up to work rather well and no reason why shouldn’t be the same here.

Finished 4th

4.10 – #1 Coda Agency Coda Agency
Course and distance winner, brilliant running here in his last two starts winning both. Drop in the weights now carrying 2lb less than last start, drawn wide but proven to handle such, winning here last December. Jim Crowley on board, same mount as last win.

Finished 7th

4.40 – #5 Army Of Stars Army Of Stars
Course and distance winner, performing well of late and though now running an 8 eight runner trial at grade 5 as oppose to last three starts, previous performance suggest this run is well within her abilities. Drawn low which is best for this trial, weights same as last run. 2nd highest in top speed figures and proven to have abilities in current grade so rise in grade not presumed to hold her back.

3rd @ 5/1

2.00 – #2 Castle Myth Castle Myth
Course and distance winner, a Southwell veteran running well into form in his last 4 starts  and should be involved here once more. Drawn wide however dealt this kind of draw winning here December last year, weights a bit high for him but believed to be within his abilities. Dale Swift on board, has taken on this 5 year old several times before performing rather well and should know the lead with him.

3rd @ 7/1

2.30 – #6 Gold Story Gold Story
Terrific performance in his last 4 starts all 2nd placing and now as no obvious opposition presented, should be able to make it for the win. Drawn wide but will cope as did in his last here coming 2nd to Toby Tyler and beating Dancing Freddy when drawn 13. Weights of no issue as they remain in the normal scale of his carrying abilities. Dean Heslop mount the 4 year old, placed a decent 2nd with him in his last. Selection proven to overpower both favorites in this field Dancing Freddy and Itsthursdayalready and should be able do so here as well.

2nd @ 3/1

3.00 – #2 Bonnie Prince Blue Bonnie Prince Blue
Running well into form in his last 5 starts, all conducted here in this field and under tougher conditions, now running grade 6 once more after higher grades success so big chances for this veteran runner to land a win. Drawn low so should benefit from it and no problem on the weights.  Course and distance winner twice in the last three months and with Dean Heslop mount the 8 year old, who’s already land a win with him in his last, should be able to overpower other runners.

2nd @ 5/2

4.30 – #1 Night Witch Night Witch
Decent form of late including a modest maiden win here, able on distance and experienced in current grade. Draw and weights not at her benefit, however judging from her previous performance is likely to take o conditions. A long shot selection as currently 10/1 and expected to go as low as 8/1. No e/w here as it’s a 5 runner race.

2.40 – #7
Slatey Hen Slatey Han
Course and distance winner, conducted fairly well at grade 5, now dropped one grade and should have extras for this run. In fair form of late showing good skills and stamina, tested and proven over slow A/W going and will be able to cope on field current conditions. Bottom weights for this 3 year old filly, a great advantage for her over the others.

Finished last

3.15 – #5 Urban Kode Urban Kode
Raging an ongoing battle with Memorabilia losing twice in his last starts, now facing his nemesis once more. Proven on slow going so no problem in current field, consistent kind who has more than a chance of placing or even landing a win. Drawn lowest, presumed to hold an edge over that, carries 6lb less than Memorabilia, and though conditions here the same when placing 2nd and 3rd to the latter, this town holds a better chance of nailing this run.

3rd @ 10/1

4.20 – #1 Yankee Storm Yankee Storm
Course and distance winner, running into form in his last showing abilities to handle steady rise in weights so extra 2lb won’t hold him back. Handled slow going before at Southwell and should do so here as well. Opposed by Broughtons Day but should be able to overpower this favorite as the latter is now one grade up whereas the Yankee remains in the same grade as last start and even holds a decent 3rd placing at grade 4.

2.45 – #4 Johnny Hancocks Johnny Hancocks
In decent from of late and the only one in the card with course and distance win in his previous starts. opposed by Mr. Optimistic having beaten 3rd but now as the former carries 7lb more whereas Hancocks carries 1lb more, a good chance for Hancock to overpower this favorite. Having done well in his latest which were grade 5 trials, now dropped back to grade 6, should find a bit of extra for this race as conditions suit this experienced 3 year old. Will benefit having James Sullivan once more, same mount as last two starts, now a less tough race so Sullivan should find his way with the gelding.

3rd@ 13/2

3.15 – #3 Vhujon Vhujon
A consistent runner with course and distance achievements in his previous starts, knows the field and seems to be very fond of it having conducted fairly well here in his latest starts. Seems to do well in small races, now Elhamri and Silver Guest N/R so should benefit this change of conditions. Drawn low, though doesn’t seem to have an edge here with such draw however a low draw is nonetheless an advantage. Weights allocated are well within his abilities for this run and with Robbie Fitzpatrick on board, has a good chance of landing a win with complimenting odds.

Finished 5th

3.45 – #4 Reginald Claude Reginald Claude
The only runner in the card sufficiently experienced for this run in both course and grade achievements. Will benefit the low draw and carries relatively light weights, 5lb less than his last two, coming 4th at Lingfield and placing 2nd in current field.

2nd @ 8/1

5.15 -#8 Sovereignty Sovereignty
An E/W Selection – Course and distance winner, consistent in his late performance and should be able to cope on conditions. Drawn low which is obviously an advantage here in this multi runner race, weights are reasonable and well within his ability scale so with a bit of extra effort should be able to place easily and maybe even snatch a win. A downsize with jockey team up as current jockey David Warren is inexperienced, however this 9 year old experience should compensate. Price predictions go as high a 14/1 on the odds so an E/W advised in this selections.
